KVB: Whoever Wins, We LoseWritten by Gary Whittaker
While rest of world watches, Americans will be voting on November 2 to either re-elect George Bush, or John Kerry. You can be sure that as citizens of earth, we all have a vested interest in outcome of this election. The most powerful nation in history of planet is at war with terror, and terrorist organizations. This war started in New York City, on infamous date of September 11th, and has now gone from Afghanistan to Iraq. Iran and her peoples are especially concerned, as they are most likely next targets of Bush administration. Slogans like "Vote or Die" are being shouted across that nation. The nation is almost equally divided, as history threatens to repeat itself after Bush-Gore controversy in Florida. Kerry has vowed not to let that happen again, but how could he possible prevent that from happening? And if he does becoming elected, will America, much less World, actually become a safer place?
The main thing about Bush is, you know what you get. He is a puppet on a string. A sock with a face painted on. A nothing. A nobody. His handlers and party leaders tell him what to say, while corporations that have bid highest get to dictate foreign and domestic policy. But you know that, or at least you know what outcome will be as a result of his re-election. The Americans will continue to wage war. The gap between haves, and have-nots will widen. Jobs will be shipped to other countries. Nothing new. The same as last 4 years. If Americans didn't complain enough then, there is no reason to believe they will complain much louder at end of another 4 years. The flip side to this is control. George Bush will maintain control of people. Money is power for republicans, not opinion. There is no money is losing control over your country. Should people start taking law into their own hands, they will be punished quickly, and severely. Bush would stop anarchy from spreading.
